Published January 23, 1998
L.A. City Councilmember Nate Holden, who was "ridiculed for stirring up a scare that the Raiders were leaving Oakland went even further yesterday, claiming the move is 'imminent,'" according to Rick DelVecchio of the S.F. CHRONICLE. Holden, at a news conference at the Coliseum, said that Raiders Owner Al Davis will "prevail" in his legal battles with the NFL and "as a result will win the right to take the team south." Raiders Exec Assistant Al LoCasale said that the Raiders "are not planning to move anytime soon," while NFL VP/Communications Greg Aiello termed Holden's comments "ridiculous." L.A. City Councilmember Joel Wachs: "We need the Raiders like the Titanic needed an iceberg" (Rick DelVecchio, S.F. CHRONICLE, 1/23).
